3:30 pm
on friday, january 11th, 2013. the new business was a presentation by me on the ada transition plan for the youth guidance center. that was a project we have been working on this year. and we're making capital requests for the next two fiscal years on this project. and the purpose of this presentation was to show exactly what we do in the structure of the drawings, plans, the contracts, the cost estimates in project meetings. we did have a second item, which was not on the agenda. and that was a presentation by mark paul on larson street shared public way on the top of rincon hill, where they are seeking public input from individuals with disabilities and groups that represent individuals with disabilities.
3:31 pm
especially input from blind and low-vision advocacy and they are seeking a meeting with the california council of the blind hopefully at the lighthouse and we'll wish to invite other council members and the members of public to attend that presentation focus group. our next meeting is usually planned for the sec second friday of the month and that would be february 8th here at city hall, but since we are having low attendance at our meetings and we haven't had many suggestions on typicks, chairman roland wong has rented that we have a joint meeting with the multimodal accessibility advisory council. i believe their meeting is the third thursday of the month. and that would be the 14th.
3:32 pm
valentine's day. we'll put out a meeting notice and topics on that, i think are topics that will involve cycle tracks and some of the projects happening in san francisco by mta. our meetings are usually held at city hall the fourth floor, room 42 1 and should you have any ideas for our physical access committee please don't hesitate to contact me. my email is it hasn't come up yet. thank you. no period between sf and gov.
3:33 pm
my telephone number is 415-554-6789. just call me at our main number. and our tty is 415-554-6169. thank you. my second presentation is on the mayor's office on disability capital projects requests for the next fiscal year, fiscal year 2014. these have already been submitted to the capital committee. and many of these are continuations of projects that we already have in the works. we try not to overwhelm the system with too much requests and spread our funding out
3:34 pm
based on the projects scheduled. but our funding tends to be a priority by the mayor's office and by the board of supervisors and the capital committee. and we really do appreciate the attention that they give our projects. for san francisco general hospital, we are, of course, fully funded for the work we're doing inside building 5, the main hospital. which will become clinics and a support hospital once the new san francisco general rebuild project is complete. we're asking for an additional $1 million for work on other locations at the campus. we have currently this fiscal year $1.7 million and these projects are rebuild the ramp entries at building 1 building
3:35 pm
9, and building 3, where the car auditorium is located. and building accessible restrooms in the building cluster that is 9, building 40, which will remain to have clinics on the floor. our second project at san francisco general hospital is the funding of phase 2 for the building 80 and 90 elevator renovations. as you have known from previous presentations, we have some service problems with these elevators. that building has many health clinics that provide central services and during the rebuild, it will become what we call "a surged space." where other sections of other departments on the campus will cycle and move into this building temporarily. so this building will have another 20-30-year lifecycle.
3:36 pm
our next projects that we're seeking funding on are for the construction of the barrier removal projects at the south of market cultural arts center, called somart to provide access to a very large mezzanine that is only accessed by stairs right now. there is a dance studio and ceramics and to build accessible restrooms in the upper floors the mission cultural arts center. and also provide accessible access to the print studio, which is on a mezzanine on the third floor. that print studio is nationally known for its artwork and its educational programs. for the youth guidance center, i just spoke about the presentation that we did for the ada transition plan.
3:37 pm
we're requesting $400,000. that is to do all the design and architectural construction drawings and obtain building permits for a $3 million project to be funded in 2014-2015. we are also requesting some funds for miscellaneous general services projects. in our master planning efforts that go on to support all of these projects, that is at the level of $400,000. and let's see, we do have some other funding requests in 2014-15. under the plan, we must plan for a two-year cycle of budget requests. and also a ten-year capital plan request. so we're looking at sun setting our funding in 2015. and it will take us through
3:38 pm
2015, almost all the way through that year to complete the construction of all of our projects. these funding requests are separate from curb ramp and sidewalk ada transition plan funding projects. all right? so these are the architectural buildings. and that is the end of my report. >> thank you, jp. is there any public comment or comment on the bridge line for any of these reports? okay then we'll move on to agenda item no. 11. >> is there any comment on the bridge line? >> no. okay. we'll move on to agenda item no. 11, public comments, items not on today's agenda, but within the jurisdiction of the mdc.
3:39 pm

3:40 pm
i'm thinking about the other hospital across the street from the golden gate park. but up the street. >> no. >> okay. why i'm asking that, because i didn't know who was working on ucsf. i don't know what is going on with that hospital over there, but i know maybe you could check it out and see what is going on over there. i don't know, because i know -- [speaker not understood] i want to say happy new year
3:41 pm
